The Flying Saucer in the Triangle near Guadalupe off North Lamar Blvd. in Austin

This is the newest of the beerjoints in Austin that have a hundred or so beers on tap. Only Gingerman comes close although Opal Divine's on South Congress has a pretty impressive selection as well. It's located in a new fancy pants shopping center with residential property up above. Kind of like living on the roof of Walmart only way more expensive. The parking is very limited for such a big space but there is a parking garage in the middle of the place and I found a spot so don't despair, just keep your eyes open and read the signs. I was impressed with the beer selection, first and foremost, but long legged young girls in short plaid Parochial School clothing didn't escape my notice either. Think Britny Spears, only good looking and not insane. You can get very affordable beer here on certain days at certain times or you can pay up to 18 bucks for what is essentially a fancy brand tall boy in a bottle. They have a big outdoor seating area and lots of room inside and they are near Mandola's Italian Restaurant, The Galaxy Cafe and Flipnotic's Coffeespace. Between this bar for beer, Mandola's for food and Flipnotics for live music, a guy stands a pretty good chance of getting lucky if his girlfriend doesn't catch him looking at the waitresses butts. Be discreet guys, be discreet. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tgZMb3HFQE0
